Here you can nominate books that were first published in French by authors from Western Africa (Benin, Burkina Faso, Côte d'Ivoire, Guinea, Mali, Niger, Senegal & Togo). Try to keep nominations to one per person - and you're welcome to second someone else's nomination.

In order to allow a maximum of people to join, easy reads are preferred! As well as books that are easily accessible.

Nominations will be closing in the first week of August.

Authors! Please note : Self-nomination is not allowed - but if you are an author and would like to promote your book, please feel free to do so in this folder. Thank you for your understanding!

About to make the poll for this Sep/Oct read in French, I see we only have two nominations.
What shall we do? Read both? Vote among these two? Or should we allow for some more nominations, until next Monday morning?

Valerie (valroos) | 299 comments I think we can extend the nomination process until next Monday.
